I couldn't find many eating options in this place but the Chicken Burguer is very good! Even came back for it a couple of times!

The eggs on toast were fantastic and coffee made perfectly, unfortunately have to knock it down an mark for the 40 minute wait and others receiving food who came in after us. However and apology was given and free coffee to make up for the delay. Would recommend but be prepared there may be a delay at busy times.

With many great eateries dotted throughout Newmarket we thought we couldn't really go wrong. Shakey Isles is in a great location but unfortunately that is where it ended for us.

Really cool coffee shop. Went to three different locations and they were all cool in their own way. Unfortunately on each occasion I didn't have to time to try the food but it looked the delicious. The coffee was superb. Best mocha I have ever had. You should come to the UK!

This didn't rate highly on the service or taste scale. High prices for very average food. Being in the middle of Auckland is no excuse - go to the middle of Melbourne with that food and service at the price it's at and you'll fail almost instantly. It does have a nice interior going for it though.

Despite them almost missing my order flat white (and watching my wife enjoy hers!) the late breakfast / brunch was a real treat and we really enjoyed the cafe itself, the wait staff and the food was more than your average cafe offering! My Haloumi was delicious!

This is a lovely cafe in Britomart. Latte very nice. We met a friend here for coffee and catch up, didn't feel at all rushed. The food looked really nice and the service was friendly.
